BEER #117: PALATE WRECKER, GREEN FLASH BREWING COMPANY

HOLY MOLY. Does this thing live up to its title. I don’t think I’ve ever made such a gasping noise after tasting a beer before. This thing is for true hop heads. I looked it up, and this baby is coming in at a measured 149 IBUs!!!!!!!!! The color is a nice cloudy amber with a few rose tones. The head is pretty much non-existent with no lacing and little carbonation. For such a powerful beer, it is very smooth and wet…probably the hoppiest beer I’ve had to date. The body finishes with a citrus orange and has piney, earthy undertones. Damn this beer is delicious – enjoy my fellow hop heads!

ABV: 9.5%; IBU: 149
